Bedroom floor wet

Have a 2016 35k Bounder- had a hard rain this morning, and as we get ready for sleepy time , carpet is wet on left side. Anyone else witness this??? What is the best guess as to what it may be????? Never happened before !!!

Most likely window seal or roof roof leak. On my Pace Arrow it was a small crack in the roof seal. Unbelievable amount of water came in.

Same problem with my 2017 Allegro turned out to be a leak under the bathroom sink adjacent to the bedroom and running under the wall.

Don't know if your bed is on a slide or not so this may or may not be something to check. If on a slide, on each outside corner of the slide, REV screws an angle iron to form the corners. The screws tend to back out over time when they do, water can intrude into the coach. The cure is to back out each screw slightly ( 1/4") and put a dab of silicone on the screw threads, then tighten the screw down. I've had this problem on two different REV coaches.

Never heard the Paddler idea before.
Mine happens if I am not level. Seems water can get under the slide topper and infiltrate the rubber seals. It only seems to occur on the forward side of the bed but not that often. So I try and "level" with a slight slant to the passenger side. Hasn't happened since I do that.
I am FT in my RV for almost 2 years

During heavier rains water gets to the floor on the rear side of the bed for us... REV "repaired" it under warranty - and it worked for about two rains.

It's not a lot of water, so we just keep a towel down there to absorb the water as it enters the RV.

If your bed is on a side, I urge you to check the screws on the angle irons on the outside corners of the slide out. Throwing a towel on the floor will catch the water but it won't stop wood rot, delamination or mold. Using a battery powered drill/driver it took me an hour to loosen all the screws and add a dab of silicone then tighten them back up on all three of our slides. Easy fix to water intrusion.

So, you are saying to do this for all the screws on the slide angle (outside) if loose? Mine all are tight at the moment.

If you have a "can't figure out where its coming from" slide out water leak, yes. If you want to prevent a future water leak, yes. If you don't have a slide leaking...at least you now have an idea of where to look if you do develop a leak.

After looking at the slide's seals ALL the way around...found that in the front corner bottom, the 'inside' seal going across the bottom of slide was a miss. It was folded in as such, and I pried it to fold out with the horizontal front seal overlapping. Don't want to nix my fix, but after two rather hard rains......NO CARPET WET!!! Thank you all for your input and thoughts. I am indebted.........
